Course Offerings for 2016/17
The Environmental Science program is constructed with a broad foundation in natural science including courses in biology, chemistry, geography, geology, environmental studies and math.
In second year, students take courses focusing on statistics, techniques, research methods and critical thinking.
In third and fourth years, students have to take a field course from Geography and Environmental Studies, as well as courses on physical geography, geographic techniques, functional biology, ecology and senior biology.
As an interdisciplinary program, most Environmental Science courses are from a variety of departments. A list of which courses to take can be found on the Program Requirements page. For course information, consult the academic calendar or see the following departments/programs:
